“I have taken the time to write this memo even though I do not like computers. The reason being is I want Dr. Powers to know how much of a positive impact he has had on me. I came to him in pain and with a deep sadness in my heart because during this time I had to send my walking buddy to heaven after 13.5 years I could not take my daily walks after injuring my knee and I didn't much care to since losing my best friend, Brooklyn. He always had a smile for me with a positive attitude. He always looked me right in the eyes and talked to me not at me. Its unfortunate but many doctors these days don't even take the time to look up at you never mind listen to what ails you. When I went to have my stitches removed he didn't just check my knee he immediately reminded me how to deal with my injury psychologically and how important it is to use mind over matter when recovering. He never left me in pain but he also knew when it was time for me to rely on self determination and not to rely on just drugs for pain relief. Dr. Powers had no way of knowing this but a few years back I had to have heart surgery and I was left in such pain. Moving forward I feared being left in pain more than the surgery itself. He needs to know what a positive powerful impact he has had on me. Not just physically but psychologically !”
“Great experience and friendly.”
“I would like to take this time to let you know how happy I am with Dr. Componovo and the other professionals at The Lehigh Valley Health Network - Pocono.
Due to arthritis for quite a few years, I had a right hip replacement. Dr. Componovo was the orthopedic surgeon who performed the surgery. I am a person who strives for perfection. I thoroughly investigated all of the surgeons in the area, including all of Northeast PA and Lehigh and Northampton counties. Based on a lot of criteria and doing my own homework, I selected Dr. Componovo and I am very delighted I did.
From the initial visits, pre-op testing, class, surgery, to the physical therapy and post-op appointments, everything ran exceptionally well. I would say it was a perfect 100%.
As one would know, it takes a lot of GREAT PROFESSIONALS WORKING TOGETHER to make this successful and the team at Lehigh Valley Network-Pocono was tremendous. The assistants, nurses, medical assistants, therapists all played an integral part in my experience and recovery. Kathy, Nicole, Rebecca, Michele, Chris, Lee, Frank, Alexa, Beth, Larry (I think I got most of them and sorry if I missed anyone), were all part of this process. Their ability to make me comfortable and their knowledge in their specialized field assured me I made the right decision. Each one of them deserves a big thank you! Also and even though it is usually something a person would not comment on, I would like to mention the food I had at the hospital. Each meal was prepared correctly and it did not taste like "hospital food." I thought it was wonderful and if it was on Yelp, I would rate it 4 stars. My wife even complimented the food was exceptional and she's a finicky eater. She actually ordered off the menu the 2nd day I was there so I know she enjoyed it very much. It's difficult in this busy, hectic world today to accomplish what they all accomplished; to make a patient feel better and be the best they can be. You can tell they all cared about me and that's an awesome feeling when you're the patient. Hats off to all of you who had a part!
Today, I do have a different appreciation for hip replacement surgery. It is a difficult surgery and I was humbled by the way Dr. Componovo performed. I have very little swelling, the pain is manageable, and through steady Physical Therapy and excercise, I am using a cane already and off my walker and it has only been 2 weeks and a day from the day of surgery. I would not have believed I would be in this position already. Dr. Componovo knows exactly what he is doing and has the experience to get remarkable results for me, the patient. The day of surgery I asked him to "Bring His A Game" and he did exactly that.
I will be selecting Dr. Componovo again as my surgeon for surgery on my other hip. I am very hopeful of the progress I am making and will make in the future. To end, I would give Dr. Componovo and The Lehigh Valley Health Network-Pocono 5 stars and would recommend both of them highly to anyone I know who would need services like mine.”
